    I Have Vitiligo

    I have vitiligo for last three years. It really had sucked me. It has not spread though but has become a part of my life. My arms and feet have some white lesions. I want if anybody can help me with some home remedies. Food that I need to avoid and that I need to add on more.

    I am trying to re-pigment... It is a verry slow process. I am trying to not eat any sugar and increase my chick-peas... My stress level is lower than it has been in years. Not sure to do past that.
